Not a fan of B&Bs but none the less have stayed in many throughout the U.S & Europe. The Kennett House is spectacular--- more like a boutique inn with its quality ammenities & tasteful decor. No detail is overlooked. The breakfasts are gourmet made with the freshest ingredients. Gilja is a hostess par excellence. We stayed in the Delaware Room, very private, very quiet. The Kennett House location is perfect. We walked to the Kennet Inn(just a restaurant-no rooms despite the name) & enjoyed lovely dinners outside on 2 consecutive evenings. A very short drive & we were at The Hagley, Winterthur, Longwood Gardens, Brandywine Museum, & wine tasdting at the winery. Leaving the Kennett House was painful after our luxurious stay. Gilja felt like a dear, dear friend.
